    Modding Thrustmaster T80 (Ferrari 488 GTB Edition) for Crazy Taxi and Jambo Safari

    Bump but that's a pretty awesome mod, man. Have you got the paddle shifters on the back working since? I have a vintage Thrustmaster NASCAR Sprint (Gameport) I rewired to use on Model 3 and PC via an Ultimarc A-PAC. It's my absolute favorite wheel that I have modded as it has a table clamp...

    Sega Model 2/3 A/B/C - CRX and how I stopped worrying and learned to love the bomb.

    Looks those are AMP UP connectors. They're used on a lot of Sega cabinets. They snap in place with a momentary lock. You could also try finding harnesses from other Sega games that use the same connector and solder them on, which I've done in the past, or crimp them with a Hozan crimper like I...

    Sega Model 3 Step 2.1 Daytona USA 2 PE "Backup Ram Unreadable Halted" Error

    Last year I bought a Daytona 2 full stack from Pennsylvania, and when I powered it on after placing the security chip, it would boot with this error every few cycles. I popped a Harley-Davidson ROM board in that partly worked but froze when scores displayed. I had sent the CPU board out for...

    Sega Model 2/3 A/B/C - CRX and how I stopped worrying and learned to love the bomb.

    So, on Harley-Davidson & LA Riders I have tried only using the Rear Brake Pedal control (pin 9 on CN1) which helps you drift in the game, but when I do leave the front brake disconnected, the rear brake begins to go full-on in the game when I twist the throttle. All pot-based Model 2/3 games do...

    Sega Rally Upright Up-Down Shifter

    Nice!! I am SOOOO jealous!! I sent my shifter board to Ken in February but waiting to hear back; he's probably backlogged to heck. If only I had the skills to rebuild the repro board. But great it actually works. I will make MY own video of it in action and a modified racing wheel on YouTube...

    PC/console controls that can be modded to work with arcade games via S-JIHP

    I've also come to realize all of the 3rd party Playstation wheels are very hard to mod because the buttons are not isolated and instead all on one motherboard, running directly to a black blob chip, so you will need to cut traces with a box cutter or an exacto knife. So they are absolutely not...

    [WTB] Sega Model 3 soundboard (DSB2) for Spikeout FE

    Scud Race used the DSB1 sound hardware. I do have a DSB2 from a Sega Rally 2 cab but I swapped it with Daytona 2 ROMs; however when I track down SpikeOut, I myself would be after another DSB2. @tsangpopohk - IDK if this site ships to Hong Kong, but I have seen fairly priced DSB2 boards on...

    Sega Model 2/3 A/B/C - CRX and how I stopped worrying and learned to love the bomb.

    I just received my Gun I/O Board yesterday, and I can attest to what you just said. The ROM Board seems to be working perfectly fine, however with my Light Phaser, I couldn't get it to calibrate properly. It displayed a frozen shot on the gun tracking menu on my Nanao 8060S monitor, and the...

    Sega Model 2/3 A/B/C - CRX and how I stopped worrying and learned to love the bomb.

    As I just got my Virtua Cop 2 ROM Board from Connecticut last week, it will not boot on the Model 2A system by itself. It displays what looks like garbled graphics, like the one shown in someone's eBay photo below. Is it true that the game will not boot without the Type-I Gun I/O Board, likewise...

    Partially SOLD: Modified Racing Wheels to DB15/Arcade (Breakout Required)

    Hi there! I apologize if this isn't wholly arcade parts but it is console controls I hacked with arcade in mind. I have two racing wheels lying around that I modified for use on my Sega driving arcade boards that I no longer need. They are taking up space in my bedroom so these would be...

    Bought my first Model 2 board and I have no idea what I'm doing! Please help!

    Yeah, I messed around with the dials and it stretches up to a certain amount. Definitely a non-standard resolution. And yes, FV2 is fantastic!! I have no doubt that VC2 and HOD will work with the gun IO hooked. Just more worried about the screen size when aiming for Justice Shots and headshots.

    Bought my first Model 2 board and I have no idea what I'm doing! Please help!

    So as I got the adapters I needed to test my Nanao FlexScan 8060S monitor, I was able to successfully get it working on Model 2/3, and I popped out Fighting Vipers 2 to test. Now, the one issue I'm having is that the image is slightly off center, and doesn't fill the screen the whole way. I...

    Bought my first Model 2 board and I have no idea what I'm doing! Please help!

    Thank you. I'll look at those if all else fails. I know where I can get the gun parts but it's just a matter of piecing it all. The Lost World: Jurassic Park in M3 Step 1.5 actually supports the Type 1 guns using old code from a location test build, though the final product came with the IR...

    Bought my first Model 2 board and I have no idea what I'm doing! Please help!

    Doing some digging, I've been looking for the most optimal monitor I could use with the Model 2 light gun games on original h/w. I didn't want to try going after an arcade monitor for these. Unfortunately, as I did my research I discovered that most PC CRTs do NOT do 25khz medium res, even if...

    PC/console controls that can be modded to work with arcade games via S-JIHP

    So a few days ago I had a crack at modding the RadioShack Mini Racing Wheel again. There are some models with the same mold that are probably a lot easier to modify, but if you are prepared to do a lot of hand soldering, it is an excellent wheel! Been playing a lot of Scud Race on my Model 3...
